Roundlobe Hepatica

Roundlobe Hepatica is an early spring perennial herb that can be found in dry woodlands and rocky slopes. The flower stalks emerge from a blanket of fallen leaves and bloom before the trees awaken in spring.

I came across this beautiful flower while hiking trails alongside Lake Michigan. There it was, alone, in an area with nothing but leaves and trees. It stuck out like a sore thumb.

Roundleaf Hepatica has also been called mouse-ears or liverleaf. It’s nicknames come from the resemblance of the leaves to a liver or a mouse’s ear.

Garden Phlox

Native to the U.S., garden phlox is a flowering plant that can be found just about anywhere; in fact, I came across this beautiful flower while driving my car down the road just a few days ago. It’s hard to miss their vivid colors.

We planted three in a row, but this is the one that’s blooming prolifically now. As you can see, the buds start out a very dark coral—somewhat like a red-orange—before they get lighter and lighter fading to light pink.
